Information

The release of "Satellite Of Love" is in tribute to the writer of the song, Lou Reed, who died on 27 October 2013.

‘Satellite Of Love (Live)’ will be available on three formats: picture disc 7”, heavyweight 12” (both featuring a rare Renaud Monfourny photo of Morrissey) and digital download. All formats will include ‘You’re Gonna Need Someone On Your Side’, the opening track from Morrissey’s seminal 1992 album ‘Your Arsenal’, which was produced by the legendary and hugely influential Spiders From Mars’ guitarist and arranger, Mick Ronson (whom also co-produced Lou Reed’s original ‘Satellite Of Love’ and its parent album, ‘Transformer’).

In addition, across all three formats there will also be four previously unreleased live tracks: ‘All You Need Is Me’, ‘Mama Lay Softly On The Riverbed’, ‘Vicar In A Tutu’ and a cover of Buzzcocks’ ‘You Say You Don’t Love Me’, all recorded live in Hyde Park, 4th July 2008.

Lyrics

Satellite's gone

Up to the skies Thing like that drive me Out of my mind

I watched it for a little while I like to watch things on TV

Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of

Satellite's gone Way up to Mars Soon it will be filled With parking cars

I watch it for a little while I love to watch things on TV

Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of

I've been told that you've been bold With Harry, Mark and John Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday to Thursday With Harry, Mark and John

Satellite's gone Up to the skies Thing like that drive me Out of my mind

I watched it for a little while I love to watch things on TV

Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love

Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love Satellite of love
